How Cristiano Ronaldo could make World Cup history in Qatar

Simply playing at a quintet of tournaments is actually a rare achievement in itself, with only three other players having done it before.

Mexico goalkeeper Antonio Carbajal’s World Cup career spanned from 1950 to 1966, while Germany legend Lothar Matthaus appeared in games at every finals between 1982 and 1998.

Rafael Marquez, also of Mexico, added his name to the list at the 2018 World Cup, having first made his tournament bow back in 2002.

Ronaldo will match the trio if he plays in Qatar, and he could be joined by eternal rival Lionel Messi, who has also featured at each World Cup since 2006, as have Mexico’s Andres Guardado and Ronaldo’s former clubmate, Sergio Ramos (Spain).
